Public and Private Partnerships Impact Public Health
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) and Divvy joined forces in 2014 with the goal of helping improve public health, protecting our environment and boosting productivity for individuals and businesses. Three years later, Divvy reported its most successful year to date. They added 5,000 new members from the previous year and more than 200,000 additional rides. Based on data provided by Divvy, Chicago residents and visitors pedaled the “Blue-branded” bikes more and further than ever before.
As Illinois’ largest health insurer, we are committed to fostering healthy, active lifestyles, and our support of the Divvy program is directly in keeping with that philosophy.
